Founded in 2004 in memory of Moog synthesizer inventor Robert Moog, the conference-cum-concert made the move from Asheville, NC to its new home in Durham in 2016 after financial trouble during previous years.
Moogfest can be best summed up in three words: weird, loud and enlightening. Featuring talks, sessions and workshops during the day whose topics range from automation to theremin operation, the conference transforms when the sun goes down. As night falls, the event turns from conference to music festival, with last year’s acts including GZA of Wu-Tang and the thunderously loud and imposing Sunn O))).
